'Raspberry Lemonade'

This colorful new entry in the Nemesia Escential series offers up vivid two-toned flowers, with rich burgundy upper petals contrasting nicely with soft yellow lower lips. Much more fragrant than the typical Nemesia, this heat-tolerant variety is the perfect choice for adding excitement to any decorative pot. Forming a dense 8-12”H&W mound, this petite charmer smothers the foliage in masses of 1/2” flowers from early spring through late summer. Bees and butterflies will seek out the flowers' nectar, so place this plant where you can enjoy their visits. Ideal for a hanging basket too. A light trim will rejuvenate the plant and quickly bring on another flush of flowers. Plant in sun to light shade in fertile, well-drained soil. Will go semi-deciduous in winter but return in the spring. Though not long-lived, it provides a spectacular show when in full bloom.
